    Way Too Expensive for What You Get

    Pros: Nice facility, comfortable beds. Made us a to-go breakfast for our 4:30 a.m departure. Keep snacks (but not drinks) available all the time.

    Cons: Owner talked for one sold hour upon our arrival, before we ever got to the room. We were left to find the room ourselves. Breakfast very plain, but plentiful. Table not set; serve yourself buffet style, collecting dishes and silverware. Bus your dishes back to the kitchen. Internet service quite poor--down completely for half the time we were there. House inconveniently located if you have no car; there is a bus, but it runs only once an hour. You can walk to downtown (1.2 miles to the center of town; 1.5 miles to the National Park), and the walking is not scenic; just through neighborhoods. Uphill all the way back. Owner somewhat bossy. No shoes allowed in house; strict instructions about where to leave the key on our early checkout--repeated three different times. The owners are friendly, but more managing than welcoming and NO special services--carry your own bags, get yourself out of the house when you leave, and so on.

    None of these problems is, in itself, particularly awful, but given the price we paid, they are unacceptable. When I booked the room, 8 months in advance, I was told that the only room available for all three nights was the suite, by far the most expensive room in the house. I had a hard time believing that this was true--I think the owner simply wanted to ensure that her most expensive room was rented first. My choice was to take it or choose another hotel. This was highly reviewed, and as it was a special occasion, I took it, but I would not do so again. This house may be much more satisfactory if you can get one of the cheaper rooms, but I recommend trying elsewhere.

    ... Russia handed over Alaska to America once we signed the check. The check of course bounced, hard to believe and since then Russia has never trusted us. (thats my version of Russia and America relations). Spent yesterday on the water, put the kayaks in and headed out to the Katlian Bay for a day of water site seeing. Now every family has jobs that certain individuals take responsibility for, not because they were given the job but they just took it upon themselves. I for ...

    ... town except in small numbers for trade. The town was surrounded by a wooden fortress wall and even had cannons aimed at the Tlingit village outside of the town.
    I took a picture of a Tlingit canoe down at the Harbor, and then a Holland America Cruise ship. Interesting comparison! I've asked if there are any Tlingit canoes that go in the water here and have been told a small one was built to hold 6 persons ...

    ... part I always seem to catch them at high tide and usually just sit on a massive barnacled rock. I do not think I have ever lived in a place where the sunsets have been more beautiful. Absolutely mind blowing, euphoric, colourful sunsets that can make a person speechless. I am obsessed with water, and the ocean. The only thing that can make the ocean better is a magnificent and vivid sunset to accompany it. The way the colours dance off the water and reflect off the sand, ...

    ... was a zoo- it is tiny with one gate and our flight was full of fishers with their boxes. Eventually we all got checked in and on the flight, which Lucy was thankfully in a happy mood for the start before a nap and then cranky at the end until she got in grandpa's lap. We all said our goodbyes to our big group as everyone else was off to catch connecting flights. We then got our bags and Dave got our fish in Seattle airport's frozen storage for the night ...

    ... fishing, canning fish, University of Alaska South Campus, Alaska police training academy, numerous government offices, air national guard offices, and of course, tourism. Prior to WWII, there were only about 3000 people, but with the war raging on, there was a naval base and army post here ; the population grew to 13,000. There are now about 9000 people since both bases are now closed. ...
